Partnership for Indigenous Initiatives (P2I) is a non-profit organization based in Luxembourg working with indigenous people around the world, with a special focus on projects and issues in Papua, Indonesia.
We are passionate about indigenous rights and supporting indigenous grassroots initiatives in Papua, Indonesia and beyond.
We believe that awareness raising on indigenous issues in Luxembourg and beyond is equally important than creating strong networks with grassroots initiatives on the ground.
We believe that partnering with local civil society is more sustainable because these organisations will remain with the local communities long after foreign aid agencies have left. We aim to support the capacity development of indigenous grassroots organisations so they are better enabled to do their work.
We believe in dignity, empowerment, justice and the access to information
P2I was registered in September 2013 after some of its founding members spend years working and living with indigenous people in Papua. Seeing the direct impact of aggressive development and rampant capitalism on indigenous societies, we decided to create a charity to both contribute to awareness raising on indigenous issues in Luxembourg, as well as supporting projects run by indigenous grassroots organizations on the ground. More on where we work here.
